OIL BOLT ALERT!!


- To all owners of BMW 8 cylinder models...
O540i, 530i and 740i models have a tendency to loosen their oil pump bolts and drop them into the pan.

We have found that,more often than not, when we remove the oil pans on these cars we will find several of the bolts loose, or missing. This experience has been verified to us through our contacts with other independent BMW shops around the world. It is definitely an issue on these cars. In several cases we have found these loose bolts can get caught up in the timing chain and cause severe engine damage ( a very expensive repair).

We believe that it is very cost effective to remove the lower oil pan and check or replace any loose bolts before they cause a problem. This job is easily accomplished while doing an oil change for an additional $150.

On cars that have a valve interference engine and use a rubber timing belt, it is very important that the timing belt be changed each 50,000 miles or 4 years, whichever comes first. It has been our experience that this is very important. Do not run them over 4 years or in mileage or a costly repair will result.
